In addition to the baby cardigan, I wanted to make my coworker a quilt to welcome her impending arrival. So when Dave asked me what I planned for my weekend, I told him I was spending it in the sewing studio, and wasn’t coming out!
And other than taking him out for lunch on Saturday after he did the brakes on Dory, I was true to my word.
I’ve had a particular panel for ages, and I thought it was time to put it to good use.
As you can see, Burton agreed. It’s a horizontal panel, which makes it a little more of a challenge to work with. I could have cut it apart, I suppose, but I decided to use it as is.
But I needed to make some geese.
Eighty-four geese to be exact!
They attached quite nicely together, and then to the panel. If you’re paying attention, you’ll notice that’s only 42 geese…. Before I got to the other 42, I had to make some stars.
Fourteen friendship stars in total. They were strung together, and the attached to the rest of the geese. And then all that was put together…
To create one fantastic quilt top, if I do say so myself!

It’s amazing! Jungle themed! I’m getting very used to jungle themed baby things after my cross stitch. 🙂 Your co-worker will love this quilt.
It is fantastic! I love the bright and cheerful colors.
That is just beautiful! Perfect since it’s not gender specific. There must have been math involved in the geese and stars. You are so talented!
What a fun quilt! You are so creative. That quilt will be much loved, that’s for sure.
Bravo! It’s not always easy to add to a panel quilt!
